Frankly, i'm sick of Nintendo using dated hardware. The 3DS needs to at least be in the ballpark of the PSP2, unless Nintendo wants all of the 3rd Party developers jumping ship to make games on modern hardware.
From: Xavier_On_High | #002 The DS used dated hardware. That's probably why it didn't do very well critically or commercially.
The PSP used somewhat top of the line hardware.. which is why it was critically and commercially successful.. 3-4 times more the the DS was. Clearly.. the better the hardware is the better the system sells regardless of the pricing point. Sony is making so much bank on the current playstation consoles.
